An autobiographical about Gangubai Hangal, one of the doyens of Indian classical music, Gangubai was in her seventies when this film was made. Gangubai was born in Dharwar in 1913. Her mother Ambabai was a Carnatic music (Karnataka Sangeet) vocalist. But she liked the Hindustani style very much. Ambabai moved from Dharwar to Hubli, where a family friend persuaded the Kirana gharana maestro, Sawai Gandharva to accept Gangubai as his disciple. Gangubai had to face lot of hurdles in learning music in those conservative days.
